Cyber Vandalism: Why We Can't Have Nice Things

It's not that I necessarily think it was a good idea for Google to allow the public to mark their maps, but this feature underscores where we are as a society. Create something that can be used for good and be rest assured it will be used to do something awful. Sadly, I had always thought Cybervandalism would be far more interesting.

Happy Birthday to Me

I don't post very often, but when I do, I do about bicycles. I wanted to put a shout out to those of you who are supporting my latest crazy bike thing. Last week, the day before my birthday, I pulled my back getting out of a car. Sigh, older but still not wiser. I'd like to blame the car, but honestly it was the over-training last week that did me in. I'm trying to stay on the mend so I can make good on the generous support of my family and friends for their birthday wishes and donations to Oakland Public Schools! Thanks everyone.

Also thanks to Jess for making my birthday so awesome. Interviewing me for StoryCorps, much foods, some drinks, and just a great long weekend of R&R.
